Question about 2wire (1000-100016-002) Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

Need a stronger signal for the wireles in our house

We have a 2 wire modem that is in one corner of the house. In that room and some ajoining rooms the signals good to great. The house is 6000 sq feet and all block and concrete construction (Mexico). So many of the rooms have zero signal. Is there a router or modem on the market that will take the incoming DSL signal from the 2 wire and amplefy so that all rooms get the signal. Thanks for your replies.

Your better off getting a repeater for your wireless and strategically place it in a room where it can amplify to the next and so on. Concrete is virtually impossible to pass through with the signals wireless transmit so a repeater strategically placed is the best way in my opinion.

    No problem mate. Just make sure you place the repeater in one of the rooms where you are already getting a fine signal. Based on what you said it will probably give you a few more rooms to use your wireless in. Good luck!

Internet wont pick up in any other room but near the router , cuts out a lot , nothing wrong with line etc ethernet works fine


Some thing is blocking the radio signal, you need to move it around the room or move it into another room to make it work.

I have an inncom thermostat in my room, and it keeps doing a thing where it will turn on, but only the fan, for about 3-15 minutes, then it will shut off. And I can only get the thing to turn on when it is...


if you set the t stat in VIP mode you can operate the fan manually but you shouldnt have to do this. it sounds like the t stat is losing communicatio with the HVAC reciever board.

Hi, i have a D-link DWL-G122 wirelesss adapter and when connected after 30 min or less the conection gets lost , what to do?


You will need to contact your ISP - they know your set up - it is all sent to them and they do not care for it - - most likely the ISP you have needs to be told to keep the signal stronger - also you can go into your unit and set a STAY ALIVE setting - please read your wireles ROUTER - it is the signal sending unit - or wireless rounter that is the problem - not the adaptor.

Need to know what i need to connect my prewired home (with cat5 cable running from box in garage to jacks in 4 rooms) to the internet. currently just have cable modem in office.


You would need a 4 - 8 port router... with a wire going to each Jack... and these would plug into the Router ports, The router plugs into the Modem. You have to put the Ethernet plugs on each end of the Cat5 cable. Then you setup your network. But if you have a wireless router you simply need each PC WiFi enabled, IE: A wireless card in each PC, that way you do NOT need Cat5. Then each PC, simply connects to the Router/Modem.

The ploblem is In need the solution of wire less network to build in the big house.


I presume you need Internet access in this house using a wireless network.
The best place to locate the wireless router is in a spot centrally located where the radio signals can reach the rooms where the computers are located. The DSL or cable modem/connection would also need to be in this area so it can connect to the wireless router.
If the wireless router is in a multi-storey house and the floor slab and walls are concrete and/or brick, then the radio signals will be impeded and the signal strength to some rooms will be weak.
In such circumstances, it maybe better to install network cables from these rooms to the wireless router, or install wireless access point repeaters to increase wireless coverage.
If you are not sure how to setup and install this network, then I suggest you get help from a computer savy friend or from your computer friendly shop.

Very short range


No this is not typical if the Network card and router are just one room away. However electrical interference and walls do impede the signal.

Try moving the Router around to see if the signal improves.
You can also adjust the antenna and pointing it in the direction of the Router.
1. Position your wireless router (or wireless access point) in a central location.
2. Move the router off the floor and away from walls and metal objects. (Such as Metal file cabinets)
3. Replace your router's antenna.
Antennas supplied with your router are designed to be omni-directional, meaning they broadcast in all directions around the router. Upgrade to a hi-gain antenna that focuses the wireless signals only one direction. You can aim the signal in the direction you need most.
4. You can add wireless repeaters. (just the room next door this would be a last resort if all else fails)
5. Change your wireless channel. You may find one that will transmit a stronger signal.
6. Reduce wireless interference
If you have cordless phones or other wireless electronics in your home, your computer might not be able to "hear" your router over the noise from the other devices.. To quite the noise, avoid wireless electronics that use the 2.4 GHz frequency. Instead, look for cordless phones that use the 5.8 Ghz or 900 MHz frequencies.
7. Update your firmware or your network adapter driver

I got a new router (Netgear W..8.)for my home


try puuting the wireless access point on the middle and atleast 5 ft of the ground this will increase your signal slightly also make sure that there is no cordless phone especially the base near the wireless access point.

Lose signal


While some loss is expected. You can change channels. 1-6-11 are the best for cutting signal loss because they do not overlap.. 2.4GHz device in operation, like a cordless phone or microwave oven can cause signal loss. Metal in walls, electrical devices and wires can also cause loss.
